Tea is one of the world’s oldest and most-consumed functional foods. It has been cultivated, processed, brewed, and enjoyed for many years. It is also the second most highly consumed beverage worldwide, and drinking excessive amount of tea may damage your bones.
An amino acid known as theanine is responsible for tea’s reputation as an energizing, calming, and refreshing drink. This amino acid is unique to genuine tea. Although tea contains small amounts of caffeine, theanine reportedly balances the stimulating effects of caffeine.
